    Default Bilateral Exercise culminates with interoperability assault

    Paratroopers of the British 16 Air Assault Brigade conduct an assault on Freedom City as the culminating event for Combined Joint Operational Access Exercise 15-01 on Fort Bragg, N.C., April 18, 2015. More than 3,500 American and British Paratroopers participated in CJOAX 15-01, a major milestone in the 82nd Airborne Division's interoperability program. The goal of the interoperability program is to ultimately create the capability to seamlessly integrate a U.K. brigade into the Division, allowing the two units to operate quickly and effectively in the event they were to deploy as a part of a coalition crisis response force.

    If i am not mistaken, (please correct me) there is no problem posting photos from an official site (armed forces site for example) if you post the source. They don't have copyright issues. So bd popeye i hope that you can continue at the new forum as well as the "this weeks photos" thread. I hope i am not mistaken...
